Andromeda's EA Access trial starts early, check it out now

Andromeda's EA Access trial starts early, check it out now

You can see a comparison of Andromeda's facial animations with the original game and Witcher 3 below, if this hasn't convinced you.

KitGuru Says: I'll be testing out the Mass Effect: Andromeda trial over the weekend to get a feel for the game before buying.

If you're in Canada, Ireland, Romania or Singapore you can download the app now, or it launches worldwide on 20th March for either iPhone/iPad or Android.

Folks with an Xbox One S can explore Andromeda with HDR enabled, but not in 4K (we'll have to wait until Project Scorpio arrives for that). You will be able to pick up exactly where you left off when the full game unlocks on Tuesday. The PC version will have an uncapped framerate, meaning you can bounce from cover to cover and blow up aliens at a smooth 60 fps as long as you have the right hardware. The Play First trial will let gamers play both the game's campaign and multiplayer mode, and as an EA/Origin Access subscriber, you can also take advantage of a 10% discount on the game if you want to keep playing it after its release.

The EA Access trial is only available on Xbox One, whereas Origin Access is available on PC.

For those of you who missed it, earlier this month Bioware clarified some details about its Mass Effect Andromeda trial. For our final verdict on Andromeda, stay tuned for our full review next week.
